A girl who moves from an unnamed school to Sweet Amoris High at the beginning of the game. She is an Ordinary High-School Student who gets caught up in the lives of her classmates—especially the cute ones. Basically you in that you can choose how she looks and what her name is and of course how she answers to other people. However the game itself does give her a little character beyond your control. Tropes associated with your Candy Ambiguously Brown: A given if you change her skin tone.
This is driven in even further by the fact that all of her relatives are drawn with light skin tones, and knowing her personality, you'd expect her to bring it up if she was adopted when she finds out the twins are not to mention Castiel making a joke about her mother being much prettier than she is, which would kind of fall flat if they weren't biologically related. If there is some kind of humiliation, punishment, or misfortune to suffer, she will suffer it. Though it really depends on the choices you make and what boys you like, once you get your candy going she can really get this way.
One promenint example is in episode 14 if you choose to stay and help Nathaniel and Melody set up the stage. Just look at her thoughts towards Melody though to be fair, Melody isn't quite that nice to you either.
For such a nice, sweet girl, she does show some pretty.. One rather amusing example is in episode 23, where, despite knowing the seriousness of the situation, she briefly forgets her worries to comment on the fact that Nathaniel sleeps in boxers. Grew into this role in later episodes. To be fair, seeing the characters and situations she has to deal with daily it was only natural she'd develop a sense of snark.
Her black hair option looks almost purple. It's especially evident in illustrations with Armin. Despite how much she does to help others, she has a tendency to be pretty down on herself in her internal monologue. Others, such as Patrick, even point this out.
She spends a good amount of episode 37 thinking about sex. At one point she even has a sex dream She feels guilty about that specific aspect. Occasionally has this in her hands. One good example is when she sneaks into the boys locker room and hides in a locker just to see Lysander's tattoo when she could've just asked him what it was and if your LO'M is high enough, he would show it to you anyway.
What makes this an idiot ball is the fact that sneaking into the locker room is the only way you Candy could see Nathaniel's bruises. They've been mentioned but to date the only adult relative we see of hers is her aunt. As of episode 20 this is subverted as they finally show up. She's always been somewhat anxious but in later episodes, her anxiety becomes an established part of her character.
For example, Alexy mentioning college causes her to have a panic attack. A staple of her character is that she is incredibly curious about the other students' lives. Several objectives are just to find out about some secret some character has.
She's almost as bad as Peggy in this regard. Oddly enough for a dating sim. She stresses to Lucy that boys don't really like her except Kentin and Dake but Lucy points out that plenty of guys have liked her, she just never noticed.
Also of note, when guys with high LO'Ms give off hints that they like her, she makes one little inward comment noting their hint before brushing it off entirely which frustrates the players who want to start dating already. Our protagonist most certainly represents the kind of girl that is behind the other side of the screen.
At the start of the game she is just another high school student trying to get her paperwork ready. She gets to meet really obnoxious girls, as well as good friends, and most importantly, has a crush on a certain someone or someones. Very mild type B version. Like Deadpan Snarker above she appears to be pushed into this mindset thanks to her every day life meaning constant teasing by the guys especially Castiel and Kentin.
Virtual Paper Doll Boys The almost all dateable boys of the game. Each boy has a love o'meter LO'M that tells you how much they like you. The higher it is the more they like you. This has an affect on things such as who you can date at the end of an episode, how they react to certain things such as actions that would warrant jealousy , and even the things they say to you. At the end of almost every episode you can get a date with the boy with the highest LO'M.
You have to say the right thing AND choose the right outfit or else you'll miss your date! Nathaniel The Student Body President and one of the first boys you can meet.
Nathaniel is a nice, respectable guy who can be studious to a fault. He can get a bit too serious at times but your candy can always get him to lighten up. He has a rocky relationship with his little twin sister Amber and it's heavily implied that he does not get along well with his parents. He also hates Castiel with a passion and is now good at drums. The bruises on his back "happened at home". Confirmed in episode 23, and you get to see just how bad it gets firsthand.
A different brand than Armin's, but he gets pretty easily flustered, especially at the beginning of the game, which makes him all the more endearing. Nathaniel has had the most sprite changes out of any character, over several years of new episodes:
